A Just Market in Downtown Albuquerque.

It's Cinco de Mayo, 2013...and beyond celebrating the defeat of the French at the hands of the Mexican Army in Puebla...and beyond celebrating what in the United States has become a symbol for Hispanic/Latino identity and culture...there is one very important event on that date: the Just Market at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in downtown Albuquerque.

There will be local and fair trade crafts, art, jewelry, religious items, pottery, olive oil, and more... And these organizations will have displays: Friends of Sabeel, East Central Ministries, Peacecraft, Our Lady of the Desert Monastery, Earth Friendly Coffee, New Mexico Interfaith Power and Light, and Bread for the World.

If you are an Albuquerque resident (or happen to be in Albuquerque that day),  the Immaculate Conception Social Justice and Service Committee hopes to see you there!
